During our email correspondence with the strangely visionary Howard Rheingold, whom we haven’t met but blogged about a while back (about “shoes and my butt” as he wrote in a Tweet), we discovered a little tag line at the very end of each email:  “What it is — >is –>up to us.” He came up with it in 1985 (twenty-five years ago!)  for a conference about The Well, one of the first online communities. We made a sign out of it because it reminds us of SO much in so few words: about the choices we have in how we view things, what we do with what we’ve got… from teeny to global.

Thanks Howard!
